So after I had deconverted from Christianity my friend bought me an apologetic Bible. The problem that I have with apologetics is that (to steal wording from E.P. Sanders) it is defensive rather than constructive. Apologist are not interested in finding the truth but rather defending their own version of it.
I've been researching the historical Jesus more and more and thought it would be a neat idea to have a historical bible, somewhat like the apologetic bible, geared more toward the NT. For instance, it would have a verse, and then historical commentary from various scholars on how historical the verse is.
I realize this would be a big project, but was wondering if anyone would be interested in helping to create a somewhat of a wiki type site where we can gather contributions from various people.
Thoughts or suggestions?
